Alice


there is

a person trapped

somehow, somewhere,

in the silver-backed narrow pass

it’s an Alice through the looking glass

tumbling round a counter clockwise world

and she is staring blurrily back at me

her hair askew, eyes drawn wide

queen of hearts at her side

to ready the axe

off she goes

off she goes

to ready the axe

queen of hearts at her side

her eyes askew, hair drawn wide

and she is staring blurrily back at me

a counter clockwise world tumbling round

just an Alice through the looking glass

in the silver-backed narrow pass

somewhere, somehow

trapped a person

in there
